Football practice highlights big day at the UW!
The Husky football team moved indoors today for the third of its 15 spring football practices due to the inconsistent weather moving through the Seattle area. Lately, the area has been besieged by high winds and off-and-on rain showers. So, to ensure an efficient working environment, Coach Sarkisian decided fairly early in the day to move into the Dempsey Indoor.
At the same time, the #1 ranked UW softball team was completing back-to-back wins over No. 5 UCLA (3-1 & 7-2) and the baseball team was playing rival Washington State in the first game of a doubleheader.
Several hundred fans ringed the track around the football field to watch the Huskies go through a just more than two hours practice session. The team wore helmets, shorts and shoulder pads and conducted individual and team drills. It appeared the practice was conducted a pretty high pace, which isn't unusual but a few media observers noted the quick pace during and between drills.
Coach Sark, as well as several players and assistant coaches, conducted media interviews afterward. You can read a great story about the UW defense on GoHuskies.com. You can also watch Coach Sark's post-practice press session through the site's spring practice central page. Also, check out this photo gallery of practice pics.
